    What you can't see in the picture is that the front wheel is actually touching the ground.... .

    Do you plan to ride it without pedals? No? Then weigh it with pedals or don't bother posting the weight. Just sayin'

    Good looking bike.

    Manufacturer's advertise their bike weights without pedals.

    I have not completely decided on what pedals I will be using though.

    why bother posting the weight of anything other than a complete and ready-to-ride bike by y'all's cro-magnon logic?
    i guess i need to expand my 29er tire weight spreadsheet to include the weights of tires only as they are a part of complete builds. y'all also might want to jump on some wheelset threads and bash away for people posting weights w/out skewers, tubes, tires, valves, tape, etc.
    here's an interesting bit of insight: take the weight of your favorite pedals in pounds and add it to Ethan's weight to see what you could end up riding if you like stan's race wheelset and aspens. or just round up 1/2 pound to 24 and call it good.

    Nice

    Nice bike.

    My LBS owner rides one of those. Sweet looking bike.

    He knows how to ride. He rides that bike hard like a Catholic Priest abusing an altar boy.

    For all the abuse he has given it, it has held up great. He rides it stock.
    You cannot go against nature, because when you do, its part of nature too.

    Weight looks about right, those are Am Classics on light Stans rims and if I am not mistaken, a carbon steerer and crown!? The XX swag is uber light compared even to XO. (just the rear cassette is a 1/4 lb lighter!)

    With MY pedals and real world 2 scoops per wheel (just say no to thorns) 2.2 tires at least (hey it is full suspension so I am gonna pin it) it be close to 24 lbs if not over a bit.

    I weigh all my bikes without rear cassette and crankset, as everyone has a different idea and preference on what gearing works best for them and their terrain.


    Sweet spesh bike tho.

    Pedals? Look Quartz or Crank Bros are going to be the lightweight options.

    How much did the frame only weigh?
    Hey, I was happy when I got my Canzo to around 28.6 pounds WITH PEDALS! I could probably take 2 pounds off it, but at what expense??

    I did not weigh mine, but if the Marathon frame is the same as the Comp frame (which I think it is) check out this thread: Epic 29er actual weight is...

    I got a 29er comp, simply an incredible bike. So glad I didn't get a 29er hardtail, as soon as I heard these were coming out, I waited.

    just weighed my Lynskey without pedals, cranks, chain, wheels, tires, frame, handlebars, brakes, seatpost, saddle, cog, stem, grips, headset, skewers, fork, and frame and it weighs 0! I'm gonna post it in the weight wiener forum and see if anyone can beat that.

    Bump the weight up 3/4 of a pound or less for pedals and that is still a really impressive weight!

    Very nice bike!! Thanks for posting it.

    BTW, to those of you commenting about the lack of pedals- you are a ridiculous bunch of boneheads and I wish you would just s-t-h-u. Here is a very nice link to colorado cyclist that displays the weight of most every popular pedal. Convert to lbs and add to the weight of the bike (unless your math is as bad as you logic). http://www.coloradocyclist.com/product/display/35520/
